XF 1.5 How to display search results as threads not posts ?


Right now when I make a search it gives me a list of posts, so it's often multiple lines referring to differents posts within a same thread...

How do I change that behaviour to displaying a list of threads instead ?

My initial post wasn't clear enugh, I know about the manual option.

I want to make it the default behaviour for all my members

Only works when using full search form, which is 10% of the times, most of time people will use the search bar which doesn't have that checkbox :(

Tried adding the checkbox line to the search bar form, not working..

It's not possible unless you're searching threads/posts specifically (rather than everywhere). You might be able to force that with some manual changes to the quick search, though it's not something I've looked into.
